, i mean, endless challenges to local governments. democrats and former lt. governor went head to head with the unions in part he did, perhaps also went head to head as well, but he did save the new york city transit system in the '80s and joins us now on the expertise of running a big state. welcome to the program. >> good to be back. >> if you were trying it run and upper echelons of government in michigan, would you want this constitutional amendment, given the unions this kind of power? >> i'm not an expert at this, but to the extent i read about it, no, i would not. i to not believe in constitutional or in some cases statutory restraints on the ability of the political process to produce a result. we've had serious problems and fiscal problems in most states. i think-- >> you don't want to see governments, state governments go heads to head with the unions. you want more after concensus approach to solve these problems and i'm going to tell you, sir, you cannot get a concensual approach between these two sides. it's got to be head on. >> well, head on is a term of art. there has t

country's interest in local communities interest in having kids educated for success in jobs and even prepared for college and citizenship it is not industry. on specific point you've made, to make two different points. one is you mentioned there wasn't a call for reducing formula fund. i've heard even governor romney recently has said he won't respond to but he won't cut them. last night your co-chair said he won't decrease, you said tonight he wants a more incentives before competitive grants. i think yourself, it has to come from somewhere. so that's where my take is, if you're not increasing funny butcher increasing income, on the affordability question, so i think you mentioned there is again, to decent people to care deeply about the future of america and education. two different views of how to get there. you mentioned the word dialback and you it to dialback certain things, not dialback others. i think what you said and the campaign said you want to dialback the president's focus on supporting federally supported state efforts to raise standards, for the common core, that you

of taxes for wealthy people? >> they reported federal taxes, state and local taxes. it gives people a fairer picture. that year i happened to pay a lot of state and local taxes, which, as you know, are deducted from the other. i looked it up the other day, and we paid, i think it's 342% of our gross income in taxes. s >> we did a little looking around to see about his. we can't find his 1981 tax return. it may have been released. maybe my bonet knows whether he released it. we did find his income is $1.4 million, and i think he paid the same as i did in taxes. he also made a reference that troubled me very much. he started talking about my chauffeur. you know, i'm driven to work by the secret service. so is mrs. ferraro, so is mr. mondale's. they saved the life of the president of the united states. i thought that was a cheap shot telling the american people to try to divide class, rich and poor. but the big question, it isn't whether mrs. ferraro is doing well. i think they are depog pretty well. i know barbara and i are doing well. and it is darn sure mr. mondale is doing well wit

research. i got in my car and drove around the country to interview local leaders in diners and restaurants. i went to virginia, pennsylvania, kentucky, utah, california. it was surprising how similar the world views of these people were. and so distinct from academic colleagues where i have been getting by phd -- my phd. the first point i would like to make, one thing that sets the tea party apart from many others is that they have a very traditional view of the american dream. essentially, they have a view that america is the land of opportunity at that old people, regardless of background, can succeed. not to say others don't have this view, but they have this belief even more so. it permeates how they answer poll questions and it explains a lot of their other policy positions that people have a hard time understanding. these are some signs that i took at the washington d.c. tea party protests here by the capital. don't spread my wealth, stop punishing success, this is part of a common theme. for this to make sense, i thought we should go to some polling data. i will show you a bunch of
